  • Cannot start the unit because the authorization service is not running - cannot start service

    I'm weirded out. When I try to start the unit on my VM, I get the following message:

    The Virtual Machine cannot be set to Unity mode because:
    -The VMWare authorization Service is not running.

    So, after a little checking, I realize that indeed, the authorization Service is not running on my host. I am trying to launch and get the following message (translated from the french, sorry):

    Windows cannot start the VMWare authorization on your local server. For more information, see Event Viewer. If this isn't a Microsoft service, contact your service provider indicating the service specific error code: 6000002.

    Event Viewer is a little more detailed... But not really useful:

    Unable to retrieve the token for the user to VMware: unknown error 1385 (0 x 569) (1385)

    NONE of these error messages to display more than a few visits on Google, especially not in exact search (with quotes around the exact phrase) mode. I'm at a loss as to what I can operate the unit.

    Technical details:

    I have attached my log of vmware just in case. Will be extremely grateful for any help!

    The only other thing I can think is a reinstallation of the vmx86 service. Rerun the batch previously posted like this, with the extreme detail;

    "%programfiles%\vmware\vmware workstation\vnetlib.exe" - stop vmx86

    "%programfiles%\vmware\vmware workstation\vnetlib.exe" - install vmx86

    "%programfiles%\vmware\vmware workstation\vnetlib.exe" - beginning vmx86

    Tracking Add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc." /v loglevel /f /t REG_DWORD /d 0 x 3

    and repeat once more for authd thereafter;

    Tracking Add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc." /v loglevel /f /t REG_DWORD /d 0 x 36

    "%programfiles%\vmware\vmware workstation\vnetlib.exe" - stop authd

    If this does not help I suggest you reinstall workstation completely from your own account. Don't forget to note your serial number if your IT Department has already given it you.

  • Printer properties cannot be displayed. The print spooler is not running.

    I followed the MS KB "file sharing and printers with different versions of Windows" for instructions on connecting my new Win 7 PC to several domestic XP PC in my network. However, once that I had on the right by clicking on the printer for XP to share, popup message "printer properties cannot be displayed. The coil of the printer does not work. This has happened even when clicking on the properties of the printer. I'm stuck now and need guidance on what to do. Thank you!

    Here are the steps of general network troubleshooting. Just cannot apply to your situation, so just take the bits that are. It may seem daunting, but if you follow the steps in the links and suggestions below calmly and consistently, you will have no difficulty to implement your sharing.

    Problems sharing files between computers on a network are usually caused by 1) a misconfigured firewall or a firewall neglected (including a dynamic firewall in a virtual private network); or (2) inadvertently run two firewalls such as the firewall of Windows and a third-party firewall. and/or (3) do not have accounts to the same users and passwords on all computers in the workgroup. (4) tries to create actions where the operating system does not.

    In Windows 7, go to control panel > everything in Control Panel > network and sharing Center. Click on "change the advanced sharing settings. You don't want to use the residential group unless you have all Windows 7 machines. If you do and you want to use the homegroup, see Windows 7 Help & Support. Otherwise, in sharing advanced:

    Discovery of plug in the network
    Open the files and printers sharing
    Turn on the sharing section Public folder sharing
    Plug the password protected sharing

    A. configure the firewall on all machines to allow traffic to local area network (LAN) as being approved. With the Windows Firewall, turning on window file sharing and printer as the above will take care of that for you. If you are not running a third-party firewall or you have an antivirus/security with its own firewall component program, then you're fine.  With a third-party firewall, I usually set up the allocation of LAN with an IP address range. E.g. would be - Obviously you would substitute your correct subnet. Refer to the safety of any third party program or the user forums for how to correctly configure its firewall. Do not run more than one firewall. DON'T STOP FIREWALLS; CONFIGURE THEM CORRECTLY.

    (B) to facilitate the Organization, put all computers in the same workgroup. This is done from the System applet in Control Panel, the computer name tab.

    C. create the counterpart of the user accounts and passwords on all machines. You do not need to be logged into the same account on all machines and assigned to each user account passwords can be different; accounts/passwords just need to exist and to match on all machines. DO NOT NEGLECT TO CREATE PASSWORDS, EVEN IF ONLY OF SIMPLE. If you want a machine to boot directly to the desktop (a particular user account) for convenience, you can do this:

    Start > Search box > type: netplwiz [Enter]
    Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

    Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null).

    XP - set up Windows to automatically connect (MVP Ramesh) -

    D. Si one or more of the computers on your network are XP Pro or Media Center, turn off Simple file sharing (Folder Options > view tab).

    E. create share as you wish. In Windows 7 I usually share the Desktop of the user and the Public directory.

    F. you have the job of file sharing (and tested by exchanging a file between machines), if you want to share a printer connected locally to one of your computers, share of this machine. Then go to the printer mftr Web site. and download the latest drivers for the correct system. Install them on the target machines. The printer must be collected during the installation procedure. If this isn't the case, install the drivers and then use the Add Printer Wizard. In some cases, printers must be installed as local printers, but it is outside this response.

  • Problems with error Windows Audio and Control Panel "one or more of the audio service is not running.

    I'm a bit of a technophobe, but I'll try to explain my problem, I got better.  I recently had a problem with Windows 8 and refreshed my system.  After refreshing, I installed AVG Anti-virus and that's where my problems really started.  After installing AVG I have no sound and my control panel usually pop up.  The box is displayed but there is nothing in it and it sorts just of sticks, frozen.  I tried the fixes recommended to fix my sound. The speaker in my taskbar icon has a red x on it and when I try to open it it goes right to the problem-solving mode, then comes up with "one or more of the audio service is not running.  When I try "run services.msc' and try to start Windows Audio through Services I get error 0x800706cc.  I tried to uninstall AVG and reboot, but it did make a difference.  Please help, this leads me to the madness now.  Nothing I try seems to work!

    Installation of AVG is when the problems started, I would start by undoing that.  Since the normal uninstall did not help, use system restore to return to a work situation.  Check here and use the #1 option.
